PLAYERS: Edinson Cavani
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says that he doesn't need to speak to striker Edinson Cavani about a move away from the club. Cavani reportedly said that he wanted to meet with officials from Napoli to discuss his future after Uruguay's 2-1 defeat to Brazil in the Confederations Cup. But Laurentiis has said that at the moment, there's no need to talk. Speaking to the press before the Italian league meeting, Laurentiis said: "There is no need to have a face to face with Cavani. "If a club offers 63million Euros then we would allow him to leave. The release clause will have been activated. "It's not fair that Cavani has distractions while he is playing in an important tournament like the Confederations Cup. "Should we receive an offer, then fine. If this offer doesn't arrive the Cavani will stay in Italy with us." Laurentiis did confirm though that the only side he had discussed Cavani with was Manchester City. He added: "The only meeting I've had has been with Manchester City, but the offer was inadequate."
